I often go out to the garden and cut whatever looks interesting and bring it inside and put it in a vase. There aren't always flowers blooming in the yard, but there are a few in the Spring.
Sitting outside yesterday looking out onto the woods I noticed how the leaves of the once little Japanese Maple on the edge of the patio were looking so red and vibrant.
Then I noticed the tree was looking a little overgrown and droopy. A few branches had grown and were drooping right over several of the nandina in front of it.
Took me about a minute to go get some sheers to cut those vibrant red Japanese Maple branches.
Several of the peonies had grown large too and some of the big heavy flowers were practically on the ground.
I cut the droopy peonies and brought them inside and put them in a vase with some water with the branches.
They look perfect on the table in the Breakfast Room.
Think I'll go outside and cut a few blooms off one of the Knockout Rose bushes like my daughter did the other day.
What beauties do you have growing in your backyard that you could bring in?
wishing you a beautiful day
